§ Mr. INSKIP
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions from what sources motor vehicles will be obtained to engage fully the repairing capacity of the Cippenham depot when the existing arrears have been cleared off; and whether the estimate of the repairing capacity at 100 a day is largely in excess of any probable requirements by Government Departments on a peace footing?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
The motor transport repair depot is being utilised for the repair of the motor vehicles surplus to the requirements of the Army, which it is 47W estimated will number about 80,000. These vehicles when repaired are sold by public auction or tender. The depot is not confined to the repair of vehicles for use by Government Departments.
